Back in June, Warner Bros. and Spotify announced a deal to create DC scripted podcasts. Now, the first-ever scripted Spotify podcast has been revealed. Spotify has announced that Batman Unburied will be released in 2021. The new podcast will “explore the darker aspects of Bruce Wayne’s psychology.”
The Dark Knight trilogy co-writer, David S. Goyer, wrote the story for Batman Unburied and will executive produce the podcast.
“I’ve been a fan of narrative podcasts for some time and was looking for the right story — returning to Batman seems like the perfect opportunity,” said Goyer in a statement. “We’ll [also] be using the unique advantages of audio to dig into the more nightmarish members of the Dark Knight’s Rogues Gallery.”
Additionally, Goyer’s production company, Phantom Four, is also teaming up with Warner Bros.’ Blue Ribbon Content to produce the podcast. No other writers have been announced for the project yet. However, that news will be forthcoming.
Spotify’s Dawn Ostroff also shared a statement about Goyer’s involvement with the new Batman podcast.
“David Goyer is an exceptional talent, and we can think of no better leader to leverage the infinite possibilities of podcasting to bring the nearly 300 million Spotify users around the world a Batman saga for the ages.”
More DC scripted podcasts are also likely to follow Batman Unburied in 2021.
